Time for a Christmas Countdown!!


Nope, I haven’t lost my mind!!   It really is the perfect time to make a  Countdown Calendar for Christmas or Advent  AND,  they’re in stock now at 7 Kids College Fund at the best price around!



The Countdown Calendar from Karen Foster Design lets you “create your own 3D treat calendar for any occasion!”    The calendar includes 25 boxes with finger notches and a sheet of clear countdown number stickers.   Each box is large enough to hold multiple treats if being used for more than one child … or adult!    (It’s definitely perfect for my twin granddaughters.)


















The best part about the Countdown Calendar is that it can be made for any 0ccasion  in addition to a Christmas/Advent calendar.   Each little drawer is double-sided ~ one side can be for Christmas and the other for any other special holiday of your choice ~ a countdown to birthdays, last/first day of school, vacations/special trips, wedding, new baby brother/sister ~ you name it, the possibilities are endless!

Also, inchie stamps would be perfect for the front of each box since the size is 1 1/2 inches, you would have a perfect 1/4 inch border on all four sides!






And, it was super easy to decorate!   The kit includes a cardboard template for cutting your paper to adhere to each box.  The front of  the boxes measures about 1 ½ inches, so a paper punch can also be used ~ I used a 1 ½ inch scalloped edge punch, which helped to be sure my finger hole was centered.   The hardest part will be to find some exciting treats to fill each box!    Sounds like a trip to Target’s dollar section for grandma!    😀
